Darfur Charity Event

by , Jul 5, 2007 | 9:40 pm

The Ante Up For Africa charity poker tournament started this afternoon after Don Cheadle and Annie Duke’s press conference at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Celebrity players Ben Affleck, Charles Barkley, Matt Damon, Adam Sandler & Martin Sheen are joining poker pros Phil Hellmuth, Jennifer Tilly, Phil Gordon and Doyle Brunson (who has the Rocky theme song ring tone) to aid the crisis in Darfur, Sudan.

The amount of people visiting the Amazon room and the 2007 WSOP Gaming Expo (which is Girls, Gaming and Gear…gee thanks) is causing a traffic jam and an epidemic of claustrophobia. While there is a “dunk the stripper” water tank with a wet girl in a bikini, Ben Affleck seems to be attracting a larger field, which is blocking my view of Matt Damon.

Not only do Annie and Don hope to make a large contribution after today’s event (even after Hellmuth asked “do you really expect to win?”) they are very excited to increase awareness in the United States.

Yes, you read correctly. In one room there are half naked girls strutting around in very little fabric while in the room down the hall there is a charity event taking place to help people that have been driven from their homes and have lost 200,000 neighbors to war.
